Last updated 1:05 PM on 11 March 2016




Once again well done to all participants who strived to achieve their personal best, representing  Bourke High commendably. 

"Warm Wednesday" as it is know known.  Thirteen of Bourke's finest swimmers set out after school, braving the desolate Nyngan road.  The goal was not a destination, but an opportunity, to compete with some of the finest swimmers in the region.  Our thirteen students played to their strengths, supporting each other throughout the day and spreading that infectious spirit and comradely that our community is know for.  With great humility we competed, we conquered and we are going to the next level.  Going backwards is an unfamiliar concept for our swimmers (unless doing backstroke), and nearly all of our swimmers are going on to represent at state level. 

There will be no floating about for our tireless warriors.   We will be putting Bourke back on the state map at the state carnival, which I'm sure will leave some Sydney schools in a state of shock.  We will be VICTORIOUS!!!

Also thankyou to our very supportive bus driver, Mr Heath Phillips.  Mr Phillips recently took out a very assuring 1st place position in the annual school bus manoeuvring competition run by the State School Bus Drivers Association of NSW.
